This section details the IATI Organisation standard. It contains the following main areas:

  • Overview - an introduction to key aspects of the organisation standard.

Additionally:

  • A summary table provides an overview of all aspects of the organisation standard.
  • An example XML file is provided, which is also used throughout the documentation.

Definition

The IATI organisational standard is used to describe one or more organisations involved in any stage development cooperation (funding, implementing etc.).
It is designed to report forward-looking aggregate budget information for the reported organisations, and planned future budgets to recipient institutions or countries.
The IATI organisational standard is also used to report links to relevant public documents.
Organisations publish this data in an organisation file. It is expected that every organisation publishing IATI data should include one organisation file, which is updated at least annually.

Considerations

When declaring information using the IATI organisation standard the following should be considered:
  • Who are the Organisations involved?
  • How are the Organisations unquiely identified?
  • What are the organisation’s planned future annual total budgets?
  • What are the organisation’s planned future budgets for aid given to recipient countries?
  • What are the organisation’s planned future budgets for aid given to recipient organisations?
  • Where are the organisation’s official public documents?
